01-03-08 Overnight Standoff Ends Peacefully

Boise January 3rd 2007- A standoff that took place overnight ended in the peaceful arrest of a Boise man. Yesterday at approximately 7:34 PM a Boise man threatened a person known to him at their residence on the 4400 block of Rim Street. The victim exited the residence and contacted police who responded to the residence. Repeated attempts to contact the suspect where ignored. At the time, officers had reason to believe a third individual was in the residence with the suspect and that was a factor in the officers response. At approximately 11:20 PM the suspect exited the residence and surrendered to police. Officer's believe alcohol was a factor in the incident.
